I don’t know how to reconcile the very real existence of evil with a “God” or higher Power that is supposed to be omnipotent, omniscient and ALL benevolent. It’s either that there is no “God” or this “God” can’t have these three properties at once. Moreover, no matter which viewpoint I adopt, I lose! This is much more than philosophizing about religion, theology or ethics. This question is ruining my life by making me feel so lonely that I end up leaving me and doing harm.
To comfort me, the LOVE God said, “now that you’ve become like us, knowing good and evil, what if you stretched out your hand, took from the Tree of Life and ate and lived forever?” Genesis 3:22
